The publisher confirmed to the media it will host an unveil event for the game on Mar. 1, 2011, taking place during the week of the Game Developers Conference in San Francisco. Additionally, EA says it will also have new game announcements as well as hands-on time with many upcoming titles, including: Shadows of the Damned, Alice Madness Returns, Kingdom of Amalur: Reckoning, and Crysis 2.

Those who purchased the Limited Edition of Medal of Honor this past fall received an invitation to the Battlefield 3 beta. Details about the beta's release date have not been announced.

Battlefield 3 is expected to ship in 2011.

Be sure to check back with IGN for all the latest from GDC.

Will be paying attention to what they have to say, but wont be pre-sale duped w/ EA/DICE promo trailers ever again.

Hopefully BF3 will have a demo recorder, or I am out. (sorry for the broken record on that one)

PS, and truly wishful thinking on my part. But if EA is going to stay w/ EB for their anti-cheat, it would make many ppl happy if they would spend half a day and teach Even Ballance how to fix/re-work the pb_ss failure issue. Even if it meant using a different utility to make the screen capture.

Lol, a cynical group around here. I, for one, am hoping this title will live up to it's name. I also hope they don't join the rest and use that piece of crap known as Vac. Keep the tradition going and stick with PB. It has it's flaws, but it works well enough. I think Vac is ghostware and doesn't really do anything at all.

we are not cynical, just tired of getting rogered without a kiss or a polite reach around

i doubt i will get worked up over another game until D3 drops

hell, killing floor was one of the best games in the last few years and no one even knows it

*edit*

and PB might as well be ghostware......

Gameinformer March cover-BATTLEFIELD 3. [64 players- PC, 24 players-Console]

The franchise that revolutionized online multiplayer for PC games is back.

In our world-exclusive cover story, Game Informer unveils the first numbered entry in the Battlefield series since 2005. Many longtime fans are wondering, "what took so long?!" DICE has honed the concept for the true sequel for years, but it wasn't until the company developed the powerful new Frostbite 2 engine that it felt all the pieces were in place to create a proper follow-up. Armed with powerful upgrades like deferred rendering, real-time radiosity, a new animation system borrowed from the EA Sports label, and an exponential leap in destructibility, executive producer Patrick Bach dubs Frostbite 2 "the best piece of technology on the market when it comes to building games."

I'm watching this very closely, it sounds fantastic but so did MOH and that's hardly been played since I bought it.

If they get it right I think it will outsell MW2, if they get it wrong it will just be another forgotten game to add to the list of many.

@ HSMagnet

Killing Floor is an excellent game and the Christmas update was a nice addition.

Battlefield 3 is the true successor to Battlefield 2. Beyond our signature multiplayer, we have also included a full single-player campaign and a co-op campaign all straight out of the box. As for fan favorite features, how does the return of jets, prone, and 64-player multiplayer (on PC) sound? All this built with our powerful new game engine Frostbite 2, which you'll hear and see a lot of in the months leading up to launch.

All they need now is the ability to record demos in first person and we got ourselves a good game.

After Black Ops nets over a billion, I thought it was a valid observation to make.



Wasn't going to point out the obvious with my post, but when "prone" is your #2 hook - in your first promo, your in troubble.

I am sure DICE will find new and creative ways to f*ck up their golden goose. Features get traded for eye candy. Hope I am wrong, and will gladly eat my words should they actually deliver a working, worthwhile product on launch.

there are enough people that just buy anything with CoD on it to keep them laughing for a few more years

and yeah if prone is your big deal you will get responses like

lion the tiger In BF3 you're going to be able to go PRONE!!!!!!!!!!!! PRONE! Seriously! Groundbreaking! Why hasn't anyone ever done that before?!?!?

Oh look paid DLC info before the game even gets released.

If you pre-order it's free, if you didn't you have to pay extra. No wonder gaming has gone to shit.

BF2 Boosters, MoH Hotzone, BC2 Vietnam, MW2 Map Packs (I can't confirm since I do not own them to get a count) all split the player base.

Stats for Game: BFBC2-PC
-- Stock Servers = 5,404 (15,339 players)
-- Vietnam Servers = 1,811 (1,722 players)

Stats for Game: BFBC2-360

-- Vietnam Servers = 608 (785 players)

Stats for Game: BFBC2-PS3

Just funny seeing people defend the pre-orders. Guess I'm one of few that remember all the "Boycott BF2SF / BF2142 until BF2 is fixed" banners and all the "fix the lag / crashing" posts. With that and after CoDBO, I will NEVER pre-order a game again. Been burned too many times.

the map packs for mw2 definitely split the base and helped them get everyone ready to buy a new game after only a year

they learned not to make a decent game when cod4 lasted so long
